P. Chidambaram, the former union minister, is currently lodged in Tihar in the INX Media corruption case.
The chargesheet against Chidambaram in INX Media case is akin to producing a dead rat. It trivialises the case and raises questions about the credibility of the accusations.
They said the Enforcement Directorate (ED) investigating team is following the procedure after a local court on Tuesday allowed the central agency to interrogate the senior Congress leader in this case.

P. Chidambaram was last week sent to Tihar jail till September 19 in the INX Media corruption case, two weeks after he was arrested by CBI from his Delhi residence.
Weeks after he was arrested by CBI from his Delhi residence, Chidambaram was sent to Tihar until September 19 by a Special Court despite his lawyers requesting against it.
The court said the probes in the Aircel-Maxis cases have been highly belated by both the agencies as almost entire material was in their possession since the beginning.
The ED had been questioning Shivakumar over the past five days, and the Congress has accused the BJP of 'vindictively targeting' opposition leaders.
Surrounded by the security personnel, a smiling Chidambaram joined hands and said: '5 per cent. Do you know what is five per cent?', indicating it with his right hand.

The case received a fresh twist after jailed Indrani Mukherjee turned approver in the INX Media case and gave testimony against Chidambaram, which largely forms the basis of the CBI case against the former finance minister.
Former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram was arrested by the CBI from his Jor Bagh residence in Delhi.
